Yemi Alade Becomes First African Woman To Do THIS

Yemi Alade’s success is unmistakable and incredibly inspiring being that she had her beginings in a music competition.

This African songstress shot into the music scene with banger ‘Johnny’ that received an overwhelming amount of support and airplay accross the continent, so much so that at 70 million views on YouTube, it is one of the most viewed African Music Videos and (as confirmed by YouTube) the most watched African Music Video by an African female artist.

‘Johnny’, a jam written about a neighborhood player who manages to con a number f girls into thinking that they are all exclusively with him only for all of them to realize (rather dramatically) that they are in fact not, has become the video to grant Yemi this great feat, feat that comes at quite a busy time in her career.

Yemi who featured on last season’s Coke Studio is currently a coach on the ongoing season of The Voice Nigeria yet continues to soar high on charts with previous releases, ‘Want You‘, ‘Ferrari‘, ‘TumBum‘ and most recently, ‘Charliee’.

Released back in 2014, enjoy the highly acclaimed video to ‘Johnny’ below.
